Bongos Cuban Café along with its sponsors: AARP, Baptist Health South Florida, Sedano’s Supermarkets, Florida Blue, and the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust are partnering with local charities to feed the homeless and families in transition on this Thanksgiving Day at the 6th annual Bongos Cuban Café Thanksgiving “Feed A Friend.”
Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Chapman Partnership and REMAR will be inviting guests to join together on the day of thanks for a Cuban-American holiday feast at Bongos Cuban Cafe (601 Biscayne Blvd.) on Thursday, November 28th from 11am-3pm.
Over the past five years, the event has served more than 10,000 meals to families in transition. This year, families will be able to join together once again for a Thanksgiving meal featuring traditional American classics such as roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole and cranberry sauce in addition to a traditional Cuban-style lechon asado (roasted pork) and classic Cuban fixings including fried plantains and cassava (yuca) in mojo sauce. Live music and children’s activities including face painting and crafts will provide a sweet finish to a day of giving thanks.
“Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, it’s about sharing family, food and love. Which is why the “Thanksgiving: Feed A Friend” is my favorite event that we do, offering a hot meal for the families that need it most. We are excited to support this event for the sixth year and look forward to many more.” says Gloria Estefan
“I feel it’s so important to give back and especially give back to a community that has given so much to us. This event is proof that the giving spirit is alive and well”, says Emilio Estefan. “We are excited to once again partner with our sponsors for this special event.”
Celebrity volunteers will be on hand to spread holiday cheer and help serve in the food line. It is always a memorable event for everyone involved.
